    I know he has been a spokesman for some time now for glock but It hit me today at just how much of a sellout this guy is!!!

    He is all about the USMC, but to trade in your 1911 for a glock??? I just dont get it.. You would think the USMC would hire him as a spokes-person or as a recruiting tool... I would still like to meet him someday, but dont understand this...

    thats my random rant of the day...

    Why Gomer Pyle, is that a 1911 in your holster?

    YOU KNOW THE ONE THING IN THIS WORLD I CAN'T STAND IS A 1911! :D

    I don't care if he pimps Glocks, the mans got to make a living. At least he isn't trying to sell Hi-Points! Then you could question his veracity! :) Actually, most of the Marines I've known loved their glocks and agreed with Cougfan2 about 1911's: they hated them. Some of the comments were: Dinosaur, outdated relic, unnecessarily complicated pieces of sh*t, etc. R. Lee is still OK in my book.

    Someone needs to explain to him and Glock that the ready position is with the gun pointed down, not into the air. Beyond that, as long as I don't have to listen to him yell, I'm okay with him endorsing whoever he wants.

    Actually, I love my 1911's, but there's nothing wrong with Glocks either. I was just having fun with the Full Metal Jacket reference. :D

    See that flag in the background, it means freedom and Gunny has paid the price for freedom. So damm it let him have a free choice in what weapon he prefers.

    Lest we forget, that all us veterans have paid a price for freedom, then comes along others who think its wrong that me make a choice.

    May I asked how many of you guys against Gunny's choice are veterans.

    God Bless Our Veterans

    Signed.

    Working for a company isn't "selling out " it's a job . I'm jealous because I would love to be a Glock rep . Trouble is , my mug wouldn't sell any handguns . A gunny has got to eat !

    Ummm you apparantly don't know that some Marine Security forces carry Glock 21s :) I believe it is the nuclear security branch. Read it in a book and online so it's gotta be true :D

    And they aren't worried about their glocks exploding and damaging the nuclear weapons?

    He's just getting paid. He played a homosexual in "Saving Silverman", doesn't mean anything, he's an actor.

    As I'm sure the Gunny would say, "once a Marine, always a Marine".

    How do you think he actually BECAME a Gunnery Sergeant?
